My Nekkid Kard!!


I have to say that I was having heart palpitations at the thought of this week's challenge...brought to us by the lovely and amazing Donna!!! She decided that her challenge would be......get this.....NO EMBELLISHMENTS!!! *gasp* I know, right?! That's just plain crazy talk!! I mean, no ribbon, no brads, no bling?! Is she insane?? I think she is! But...being a gal who'll try just about anything once....I took the challenge!

I chose to use the new Flower Fairy image by artist Crissy Armstrong! LOVE these new fairies! I pulled out some awesome My Mind's Eye papers and coloured my fairy with my Copic markers. The fantastic sketch that I used is actually today's challenge from Sketch Saturday and Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps is this week's sponsor!! You could win yourself some awesome rubber by joining us!

Let me tell you, it was tough not using any embellishments on this card, but I was able to use my scalloped border punch and my new label punch for the sentiment, which is from the Fairy Sentiments set. It was literally painful for me not to add ribbon to it....or brads....or bling...but I did it! And I'm proud! Even though it does feel kinda nekkid! Haha!!



Now hop on over to the Kraftin' Kimmie Challenge Blog and check out the fantastic creations by the Krafty Girls! Then take the challenge with us and you could be a random winner of some new KKStamps!! And if you upload your cards to Splitcoast, be sure to use the keywords KKSC14 and KraftinKimmie (no spaces) and your design will show up in our very own gallery!! Woohoo!

Have a Krafty weekend!
